Vancouver will be featured in an episode of The Bachelorette that will be shown on ABC during prime time next week.

On Monday’s episode, the Vancouver-born bachelorette, Jillian Harris, takes her 13 suitors on a trip to her hometown.

Dates include a romantic dinner at Grouse Mountain Resort, a kayaking excursion to Granville Island, a picnic in Stanley Park and a Vancouver harbour cruise aboard a luxury yacht.

The men stay at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver downtown, with the final rose ceremony being held in the hotel’s historic Boardroom.

The exposure has Tourism Vancouver officials excited. A contest for a romantic getaway to Vancouver is being launched to capitalize on the TV appearance across the United States and Canada.
